No strikes. Just “OUT” immediately. I don’t know why the thought of baseball just came to my mind when I learned that Congress never gave second thoughts, or another chance at bat, before declaring ABS-CBN out of the game. Of course nobody questioned the referee, they all know who his own coaches must be. Some of my own colleagues have expressed apprehensions at what could also happen to our own fellow practitioners who may dare step on tender toes, but I always console myself with what the late Msgr. Antonio Fortich used to tell us: “They won’t bother with you, you are only mosquitoes”.
